Sping Cycle--Sping--Not Yet

What does spring mean to you?  What does spring mean to me?  Spring is buds on the trees, tulips and daffodils, and warm sunshine.  However, spring won't appear in these parts for at least another month.
We live at 7200 ft elevation. Winter is slow to leave, even in good years, this year winter looks to be really slow in leaving. Today our temps are supposed to reach 49F.  This is quite warm for us.  It does have the effect of the oh, so fashionable shorts and sweatshirt look on campus--when there are students here. 
There is snow in our forecast for tomorrow night.  Also again on Sunday.  The first flowers won't poke their heads out until close to the end of April, unless they want to get frozen. Spring is usually quite short here.  And it comes with wild weather swings. We can go from 60 degrees and sunshine in the morning to 6 inches of wet blowing snow by afternoon, and back again.  The saying "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes" is truly Wyoming in the spring.
I'd love to see this for srping:
We won't see that for another month.  What we will get is more of this:
Winter will let go eventually, but we know not to hold our breath.

Do you have a cheerier view of spring?  Spin it up and link it up with Gretchen and Ginny Marie, they would love to have you!

I don't know. I am really sad about spring not being here right now. Or ever. In the near future. Ugh. LOL

I'm not even going to tell you what the weather is here, it would just be too cruel. Hang in there!

We've gotten warmer here, but they are calling for one more storm next week. I am so ready to get rid of this cold, snowy weather and move on to Spring!

Love your pictures of the flowers, yet to come. It was beautiful in your area when we visited in mid June, 2008.

PS. Sorry the only color from the window is a line of port-a-pottys and one truck : > (

Wow, you do live up high! I think everyone's spring is later than usual this year, except for the West Coast! But they really need rain, so that helps me from being too jealous.

So tired of winter! We live near Buffalo so the Great Lakes keep us cool until June. I can't wait to see the spring flowers!

My spring is arriving late, too. I've almost forgotten what flowers look like.
